Thank you so much for responding. I don't know anything at all about Fred Turner and the son Raymond Turner except that it was said that a Fred Turner was the 4th husband that Elizabeth Keith had. Elizabeth Allie Keith (Hunicut)( Kirk)(Rowell) Turner was born abt. 1871 in Calhoun or Cleburne Co., AL to a William A. Keith and Serena C. Phillips. I don't know much about her first marriage, and can't get ahold of the people who originated that information. She married her second husband in 1892 in Haralson Co., GA. By her second husband, Jesse Blanton Kirk, she had two children: born 1894 and 1899 in Carroll Co., GA. In about 1900 or so she left her second husband and moved to Rains Co., Texas with her 2 small Kirk children. I think she already knew her 3rd husband, Robert Rowell in Georgia. She had 1 child by her third husband, and then apparently left all three of those children to the care of a 1/2 brother, Philip Reagan Keith in Texas (some time before the 1910 census in Texas), and she moved to Louisiana with a fourth husband, a Fred Turner. One family story had it she moved to Bossier Parish and the other family story had it they moved to De Soto Parish. One of the Kirk descendants said his grandfather had located her grave in Bossier Parish (but didn't tell his son or grandson), but when this man and his father (son of the man who found the grave) went once to search the cemeteries for the grave, they couldn't find it. Another Rowell descendant heard that his ancestor, Elizabeth, had moved to De Soto Parish. No one is sure, and as you see this wasn't an easy story to figure out...and I looked on census records and couldn't find anything. Some descendants of a brother of Elizabeth Allie Keith gave the above information to a man named Larry Keith who wrote a book about the Keith families. Larry Keith didn't have current addresses for any of these 6 descendants who gave him this information. So....we are stuck on figuring out what ever happened to Elizabeth Allie, unless someone in your county happens upon some records somewhere. Thanks for any help you could give us. We don't have much to go by, so I understand if nothing more is found.
